Emergency crews intubated the man and got him in an ambulance, with advanced paramedic Luke explaining: "I've seen the damage to his helmet. He's had his helmet on but it's just imploded. He needs blood. He needs surgery."

It was a very difficult scene.

Having left the patient in the hands of the doctors at the hospital, Luke took a breather and reflected on the job at he updated a colleague over the radio: "The gentleman is in for a scan at the moment. He's got quite massive, I think, haemorrhages. A fractured pelvis.

"He's quite unwell but definitely the right thing to send me over there. It was a very difficult scene."
